Welcome to the Microsoft Speech Application SDK

  Microsoft Speech Technologies Homepage

Version 1.1

The Microsoft Speech Application SDK Version 1.1 (SASDK) is a developer's kit for adding speech interfaces to Microsoft ASP.NET Web applications. The SASDK contains a wealth of resources, including ASP.NET Speech Controls, a rich voice mode grammar library, speech development tools, debugging tools, and log analysis tools. These tools enable developers to create applications that recognize spoken commands and depending on the mode, communicate a spoken or a visual response to the user.

The SASDK also includes documentation that provides a wide range of instructive and practical information. In addition to a reference for Speech Controls, the documentation offers conceptual overviews, information about the set of tools contained in the SASDK, and a tutorial that demonstrate how to create a specific type of application. As an aid to help locate information, the following section lists and describes the main areas of the documentation.
